for iraq from george w. bush to barack obama." welcome to both of you. great to be able to talk to both of you here. the close of this campaign. it is very interesting to hear both president obama and mitt romney look in their rearview mirror about the last decade in foreign policy and national security policy and the president saying, look, i ended the war in iraq, we are on a glide path out of afghanistan. and yet we know the threat from both of these countries still remains and there's a lot of unfinished business. michael, you get to a lot of that of course in your book, in iraq. the idea that we're done. put it in the rear view mir but there's a lot of unfinished business. >> yeah. one thing that's striking to me is just really the gap between the campaign rhetoric and what the obama administration's actual policy was in iraq because you have to ask yourself the question, what does it mean to end a war? and it's lot more than simply removing troops and actually, when president obama approached iraq, he, himself, and his team, thought it entailed a lot more than removing troops them

and they didn't. and they're showing up in iraq for the same reason. they're trying to defeat us. and if we lose our will, we lose. but if we remain strong and resolute, we will defeat this enemy. >> ninety second response, senator kerry. >> i believe in being strong and resolute and determined. and i will hunt down and kill the terrorists, wherever they are. but we also have to be smart, jim. and smart means not diverting your attention from the real war on terror in afghanistan against osama bin laden and taking if off to iraq where the 9/11 commission confirms there was no connection to 9/11 itself and saddam hussein, and where the reason for going to war was weapons of mass destruction, not the removal of saddam hussein. this president has made, i regret to say, a colossal error of judgment. and judgment is what we look for in the president of the united states of america. i'm proud that important military figures who are supporting me in this race, former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff john shalikashvili, just yesterday, general eisenhower's son, general john eisenhower, endorsed me,
we talk about leadership, too many people think of the iraq and 2003, which was a fatally bad exercise of leadership. >> rose: we conclude this evening with dexter filkins of the new yorker magazine who has a remarkable story about death in iraq and reunion in the united states. >> the i interviewed a guy in the peace, a psychiatrist who used the term moral injury and he sa a t of soiers a marines stuff from moral injury, which he described as sort of it happens when you get an order, you do something that you believe at the time was absolutely correct and the only thing you could do, and it turns out to have been, to have terrible consequences. that is basically what happened here. >> rose: american foreign policy and a dexter filkins story. when we come back. funding for charlie rose was provided by the following. additional funding provided by these funders. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. rose. >> rose: we begin this evening with the 2012 election last night, president obama and mitt romney balanced it ou

personalize the story of iraq a little bit and talk about your own views. this is a place you traveled in with saddam hussein, you were a supporter of the war. explain why. i found some of the most wrenching passages in this book discussions about what a disaster the iraq war has proved for every party in the united states, most of all the iraqis. >> i knew iraq intimately in the 1980s as a reporter. huckabee airtran/iraq war from the iraq side. iraq was like a vast prison yard under saddam hussein. it was so suffocating that i can compare it to no place in the arab world but i could compare it to romania which i knew intimately. to go from saddam hussein's iraq to syria was like coming up for liberal humanists bare. we tend to say all dictators are bad and all democrats are good. we eliminate -- we e. race distinctions and it is distinctions that give us the complexity we need to understand the world and assad ran a brutal dictatorship but nothing like saddam hussein. i had my passport taken by the iraqi authorities when i was in iraq -- i was very nervous obviously. i only got back t

is to know that the united states may not leave as quickly as they expect. look what happened in iraq. boy, we stuck to our deadline, and we did not work all that hard to make sure that there was a status of forces agreement with iraq. look at iraq today. with a man who is trying very hard to become a shia dictator, with civil war breaking out again, with al qaeda active not only in iraq, but iraq's neighbors, how well have we done? have we brought peace and democracy to iraq? are the iraqi people safe? the answer, we know, is no. the difference is -- this goes to your question, i do not want to evade it -- mr. romney says, how many troops? how many troops will depend on the situation on the ground. what you do not want to have is an announcement ahead of time, we will have x number of troops, for a y number of years, and let the taliban plan against that. if we announce what we are going to do, it is like telegraphing in basketball. the best way to get the other team to steal the ball is if you telegraph your pass. >> just to follow up on that, the fact that the administration is negotiat
positions than last night on iran, on afghanistan, on iraq and on russia. those are some of the biggest challenges ahead of us in 2013 and '14. i think this does get to credibility. i think he hurt himself last night in trying to be something that he has not been: very consistently in the campaign trail. on the other hand, i think what you saw from president obama is someone with a fairly impressive international record of accomplishments in his first term and a very clear difference, i think, in where he would take us on some of those issues than governor romney in a second term. >> woodruff: richard haas, how did you read the, i guess, the difference between the agreement of what we heard last night from governor romney, the criticism in the past, and how do you square when governor romney says he believes u.s. foreign policy is unraveling under this president but then he proceeds, as he said, to agree with him on a number of points. >> well as richard nixon i think it was who said when you run for the nomination you've got to tack more towards the end zones. when you're in the genera

do you think that was? >> well, that was the period when they began to think about the surge in iraq. >> reporter: the war in iraq had reached a crisis point. and that was where president bush was about to commit more forces. the preoccupation with iraq is captured in a 2006 memo from defense secretary rumsfeld. i keep having meetings with general george casey, the commander in iraq but i need more meetings with general carl eikenberry, the commander in afghanistan. i need to know what he is doing. si have no idea. several months later eikenberry sent a personal letter to rumsfeld warning the war against the taliban had reached a stalemate, and the u.s. should rethink its goals. rumsfeld told eikenberry he thought it was an excellent letter but i don't know what to do with it. in 2007 when then joint chiefs chairman admiral michael mullen made his first trip to afghanistan a sergeant told him he was seeing his men crumble under the stress of too much fighting with too little equipment. accord-- according to notes taken by an aide one commander asked for 34 more legal korpts, mullen r

! (laughter) how about iraq? >> governor romney, was the war in iraq a good idea worth the cost in blood and treasure we have spent? >> it was the right decision to go into iraq. i supported it at the time; i support it now. >> jon: but do you support it -- (laughter). now? >> we don't want another iraq. we don't want another afghanistan. that's not the right course for us. >> well, i guess that's not a flip-flop so much as a principled recognition because of the iraq war's current unpopularity. (laughter) you know what? iraq and afghanistan those are yesterday's wars. it's tomorrow's war that counts and if there's anything governor romney has been vociferous about lo these past 18 months it is his uncompromising belief that it's time to rattle our sabers at iran. >> this is a president who should have instead communicated to iran that we are prepared, that we are considering military options, they're not just on the table, they are in our hands. >> the president should have built credible threat of military action. when they see our military option in our hand, a possible blockade or ae
for bringing to bear some of the numbers, some of the horrific things that are happening in iraq right now. this poem was drawn from my experiences in iraq from the culture, from the music and from its traditions. so i have dedicated this poem to iraq. i think it will be helpful for you to know el kubenchi, along with el watanabi. el kubenchi is famous for music, a great history and tradition of music, and he has taught all the gray modern singers of the 20th century who came out of iraq. his music has touched me and you will hear it in this poem, 32 beads on a string. i woke from the nightmare of a gutted macom, not because i have not yet bled my life in yellow, but because minarettes looking sky ward. one burly buffalo looking for hooves and hot breath because the skin is not yet numb and the lights are not yet flickering, i will continue to sip at my hot tea and stare at the dust-colored noon. one white dasha screams with the brilliance of red. can you hear them, the melodious intent, the glimmering mood in their eyes. face stitched by seam, a garment i have sewn to my skin. whatever re
